Many shop and food have been changed to modern style but still you can find Korean special style.
아무래도 한국의 서울의 대표명소이다 보니 외국인들의 방문도 많아지고 따라서 여기저기 손질이 되곤 하지만 낡음은 줄어드는만큼 청결해지고 다양해지고 개방형으로 또 개성있는 곳으로 다른 변화를 거듭해가는 듯하다. 그래도 도시에서...More

I enjoy staying here and hang out in Insadong. I enjoy the street mucisian songs especially at night when not so many people around.

We stayed at Orakai Insadong Suites which have great apartments and central to all the shopping, restaurants and subway.
Some great restaurants and close to Ikseon Dong alleyways which is a very trendy area for young upmarket Koreans with beautiful little shops and restaurants.
Lovely neighborhood with very atractive shops where you can purchaise qualitative good especialy women clothes and souvenirs in reasonable price without need to burgain too much.
Good atmosphere, clean and friendly. Prices not on the cheap side but fair.
I have to admit.. visiting Insa-dong was one of my favorite parts of our trip. You can find homemade souvenirs for very cheap here. Plus the street food! We tried a poop shaped pastry with chocolate in the center and it was so good!
Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts, fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in particular has become a local institution for its unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops
inside that sell handmade crafts and goods. This is the perfect neighborhood to sample a range of Korean dishes, with vegetarian Korean temple cuisine restaurants being a popular draw, but street food carts are just as famous. As a top tourist destination, crowds can swell, particularly on weekends, but you can find some rest and respite in one of the private art galleries or grab a cup of Korean tea in a tea house – many of which are located in beautifully renovated traditional Korean homes.

Regarding jumbo taxi. We took one when we were there from incheon to Naaman and it cost about 100,000 won but there was a lot of traffic. Insadong should be better in terms of traffic but because it’s late there may be additional fees. I’d say count on $20 or less per person. Btw all / most taxis take credit cards so you don’t need cash. Jumbo taxis will take credit cards for sure.
There is a place outside the airport designated for jumbo taxis. I can’t remember where on the ground transportation island but follow signs to ground transportation and you’ll see signs (or follow the taxis’s leaving!)

Definitely walkable. I did that a week ago to get back to Myeongdong from Insadong. Only took about 15-20mins. Just use google maps to help you. You may use Cheonggyecheon stream to help you along the way.
